Fabulously located historic hotel dating from 1859, with a view of the Valais Alp 4000ers (peaks over 4 000 metres). Neatly renovated and with an elegant wellness facility added in 2004, the former chalet is now a stylish, luxurious gem with original furnishings. Situated 1650m above sea level in the middle of an alpine hiking and skiing paradise. Authentic cuisine, excellent Valais wine list.
A narrow gorge, only penetrated by a few rays of sunshine at mid-day, a grotto where health seekers bathed, and arguably the most famous natural scientist as first spa physician - this is Bad Pfäfers. Today the Tamina Gorge (approx. 15 minutes from Bad Ragaz) is accessible in a more comfortable way than in the ancient past.
The Romans bred woolly grazing pigs, occasionally called their horses "lecher" and sifted remnants of spices from their wine before drinking it. At least that's what they did in Augusta Raurica, the best-preserved Roman town north of the Alps.
